Some say love is like a river
That overflows the tender ridge.
Some say love is like a razor
That leaves the heart to bleed.
Loves takes a man from his comfort zone,
Leaves him in a state of desolation.
But I say love is like a man,
That comes to you with a sweet tongue.
Talk you to the possibility of life,
Makes you feel unbreakable,
Leads you to the unknown,
But deserts you at the center road, A road of no going back,
Leaves you with regrets.
Makes you feel never to fall in love again.
